Visit Christchurch, Enter The Oasis

In a bid to lure visitors, Christchurch’s The Palms Shopping Centre will be introducing The Oasis, a virtual-reality (VR) entertainment concept.

The home-grown concept features a variety of entertainment offerings, including mini golf, more than 50 arcade machines and racing simulators. VR experiences include VR escape rooms, all-ages VR games and a room-scale multiplayer experience – the first of its kind in the country.

“The Oasis pop-up has already proved popular with shoppers and visitors over the summer,” said Keryn Ward, centre manager at The Palms Shopping Centre.

The Oasis is scheduled to open this August, while the initial pop-up venue will close at the end of this month.
